We LOVE Houston, and love that we are raising our families here. Houston is deep rooted in history. As the fourth largest city in America, we are a melting pot of families and cultures. It’s hard to pinpoint the vibe in Houston {because there are so many} but one thing is for sure :: people may come here for work or to visit, but they stay here for family.

Houston Moms Blog is so excited to partner with Neighborhoods.com to show what Houston has to offer growing families. Why live in Houston? Whether you want to live in town or in the suburbs, we have you covered. We know that Houston is the best area in the state.

If you are new to the area, planning a visit, or choosing the best place for your next home, we hope this guide helps you find the right place for your family. We polled local moms to spotlight the following neighborhoods and what they love about them.

Neighborhoods.com is a full service brokerage and an easy to use online real estate resource that helps people find the perfect home as well as the ideal neighborhood. We believe that the neighborhood you live in is just as important as the home you live in. The people, places, schools and amenities that surround your home have an enormous impact on your quality of life. When you’re looking for a place to live, you aren’t just picking out a house. You are also deciding who your children will play with and who you might become friends with. So while many people search for their dream house, we believe you should look for your dream home. And your neighborhood is a huge part of that dream.
